Transporting People

As part of our efforts to improve Passenger Experience, we want to attract the best talent into the transport industry. There are excellent opportunities and fun things to do. Transporting People are a series of interviews with people inside the industry to find out what they have to say about how they’ve developed their skills and experiences.

We’re always on the lookout for people with new and interesting things to say so get in touch if you’d like to contribute!


Sadly we can’t arrange video interviews with all the interesting people in transport, so we email them an interview instead! These are posted here.
